PT OK 4ME With Him

Monday, May 18, 2009

I started the day with several itmes on my list that I looked forward to doing; one that I dreaded - PT. Granted, I realize that Iwill benefit from the hard work, but my concern is will the benefit be enough for me to meet my fitness goals. I not only want to loose weight, I also want to become stronger and more flexible in my lower body.

The therapist has agreed to work with me to help me meet these goals but it will be hard work and today I got a taste of just how hard it will be. So as she rubbed and worked on the tight muscles in my upper thigh and hip (ohhhhh the painnnnnn!), I had to remind myself that I have to go through the pain to get to the goal.

Each exercise that worked those same muscles made me want to scream but I just kept breathing and told myself, "don't you dare cry." Then I laid on the bench with a large bag of ice on the hip and read my book to escape the experience that lasted all of 45 minutes. When thoughts of returning to PT for more of the same on Wednesday crept in and the book no longer helped; the last 10 minutes on that bench with the ice on my hip, was just me and God. It was at that moment I realized that I, with His calming reasurance, can do this, and I will.

    Mary, I just asked in the Coffee Shop how your PT was going, and then saw your blog. It sounds like you have a hard road ahead of you. With His help, you can get through anything.
